Our 2016 Stag is the ideal wine for true aficionados who enjoy the bold, full-bodied character of a Cabernet Sauvignon blend, but want a wine that is drinkable now and that pairs well with cuisine. The Stag is our original multi-varietal blend. It is an opportunity for us to showcase our winemakers’ blending talents, and to introduce our club members to a new, luscious style of wine.

The 2016 Stag is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Franc. It was aged for 22 months in new and used, toasted French Oak barrels to impart richness, depth, and complexity. The grapes for The Stag come from a small vineyard in the central coast region of California, not far from Paso Robles, where we ferment and age the final masterpiece. Like our other vineyards, the grapes are farmed using sustainable methods and without the addition of chemicals or pesticides. 

This wine is ready to drink now, but will age well and is drinkable through 2024. As this blend is a full 75% or powerful Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, we recommend decanting this wine for a minimum of 30 minutes prior to enjoying.  Pair The Stag with grilled or braised meats like Beef Bourguignon, wild game, and cave aged imported cheeses with intense flavors.
